Lost Bob Marley tapes and recordings found in basement

Hip Hop Hollywood 06/02/2017

Since Bob Marley's death in 1981, dozens of the reggae legends music has been released and many have thought that all of Uncle Bob's music had been put out to the world - until a recent discovery.

A rundown London hotel has discovered a treasure trove of previously lost recordings.

Thirteen reel-to-reel analogue master tapes - recordings which in some cases have only been heard on bootleg versions - have been discovered rotting in the building's damp basement.

They feature recordings of Bob Marley and the Wailers concerts in London and Paris between 1974 and 1978, when the singer was at the height of his powers.

The news comes on Bob Marley's 72nd birthday.

It's hoped that the recordings will be avaliable for download and in CD form for the public.
